This report calculates the backup size variation of the last good backup with the average backup size per a client, policy, and schedule type. If any variation calculation is greater than the selected value of variance when the report is run, the client, policy and schedule type combination is shown with the actual variation.
If you ran multiple jobs for the same client in the given time frame like 10 jobs per the master server, client, policy, and schedule combination then the report calculates the difference between the last job and the average of the remaining 9 jobs.
